Here, I had some free time so I decided to once again do the Fishbowl Power Rankings for this new season.The formula is the same for total overall average as past season (offensive players + 2 * defensive players + best goaltender)/25. Rather than just chose the top players from each team, I selected players in order as your regular lineup or a swap of players if there is a stronger injured player and then filled any remaining holes with the top scratched/affiliated players. I've also done an average for height (in cm as it's easier) excluding goalies as I was curious.

The question is if I can finish anywhere near my projected finish.

 

Nice post Matt! (However, you did miss Hawkeye's overall average height)

Fixed it, I guess I just forgot to write it down.

 

I'm surprised about 3 things;

 

1. How far Urbancrest fell 5 places in the rankings and they are actually better now than last season.

2. How high Wynward ranks after having just been in the SHL for a season.

3. The fact that my team ranks a bit better than last year even though I just let 2 of my best players fall into free agency (they were old) and didn't grab any equal replacements in free agency. I thought that I would start off a bit worse but than progress fast with my young core.

Excellent job again!

 

Although I don't understand why my goalie average is just 86. Can you explain? 

(Because I obviously use Dixon as my nr 1 and Croke as nr 2)

Lol why can't I get your team right. But I see why, most teams had a bunch of assigned players and few goalies while you have 2 assigned players and a number of goalies, so I mistakenly grabbed your best affilĂ®ate rather than goalie. I'll fix that later today.

My Predictions:

 

Season

 

1. Horn Lake

2. Larson

3. Hawkeye

4. Wildwood

5. Cuba City

6. Sellwood

7. Urbancrest

8. Montmorency

----------------------------

9. Pinewood

10. Wolfe

11. Cedar Rapids

12. Wynyard

----------------------------

13. Molson

14. Blenheim

----------------------------

15. Portland

16. Jolly

 

As for the playoffs, I think Hawkeye will take it over Horn Lake in the finals. No one will go down in the relegation playoffs.

 

The top 5, as I've called them the past few seasons (Larson, Hawkeye, Horn Lake, Wildwood, and Cuba City) are all stacked, and experienced. They shouldn't be displaced at the top. If they are, they shouldn't miss the playoffs.

 

Last season, Urbancrest was pretty much the 2016-17 Toronto Maple Leafs, unexpectedly finishing 2nd with Bonnier (Matthews) leading the team in goals, and some excellent goalkeeping from McCready (Andersen). I wouldn't expect them to miss the playoffs.

 

Sellwood has a lot of tall, strong players, and they are very underrated. I have them finishing 6th.

 

Me finishing 8th may be a stretch. I think 6th to 8th will be very close, with teams missing the postseason by 3-6 points.

 

Pinewood and Wolfe are both good on paper, but time will tell if they can realize their potential.

 

Cedar Rapids is regressing, and Wynyard shouldn't finish in the playoffs despite a high power ranking. A lack of veterans will be their Achilles heel. 

 

Jolly should finish dead last, by far, while the remaining teams will likely be scrapping it out to avoid 15th.

 

Players

 

Top Goal Scorers

 

Audrick Pipe (Cuba City)

Espen William Renshaw (Wildwood)

Carl Nadeau (Sellwood)

 

Top Point Getters

 

Oliver V-G (Larson)

Zain Gracie (Horn Lake)

Alexander Bodrov (Cedar Rapids)

 

Top Goaltenders

 

Bernardo Del Grosso (Horn Lake)

Chris McCready (Urbancrest)

Cornelius Chao (Montmorency)

 

"Calder" Candids (Or Rookies to Watch)

 

*** I didn't include rookies in the minors

 

© Christopher Audette (Montmorency)

© Sam Cardy (Wynyard)

© Waltteri Anttila (Sellwood)

(G) Bronson Brayford (Horn Lake)

(F) Ivan Handlir (Pinewood)

 

"Norris" Trophy Candids

 

George Gales (Larson)

Milan Frost (Larson)

Harun Kucera (Horn Lake)

Rory Grigg (Hawkeye)

Luka Berger (Wolfe)

 

Breakout Player of the Year Candidates (Guys I think will break out)

 

Joen Jacobsen (Horn Lake) - I'm expecting 50-60 points
Hanus Kubacky (Wynyard) - Probably 45+ points

Espen William Renshaw (Wildwood) - Despite putting up 17 goals and 44 points, I think he can go 30-30 and 60 points.

Emeric Dagneault-Laprise (Larson) - In his first full season, I won't consider him a rookie, but the sky's the limit on a stacked team.

 

Please don't slam me over this, these are my honest predictions.

Wow...OUTSTANDING work gentlemen! Now I feel the pressure to produce! Now if we can just get BDG back to form between the pipes we should be fine. Especially if Gracie maintains his 150 point pace! :D  Good Luck all!

Hey IneffableLeafs...that was remarkable how accurate you were with your predictions! We were very fortunate that your Finals prediction was just slightly off as it did come down to a game 3 that the Hooligans fell behind 2-0 early in the first period. Keep up the good work all! Great season, Hawkeye! Good luck with the draft, all!

Congratulations on the Cup!

It was well-deserved, although I had hopes I could sneak a win in Game 3. However I think I lost it in Game 1.

 

Good luck next season, let's hope it will spectacular for all of us!

This is a great game.

Thank you! I think you're right about game 1, but you truly never know. Especially since statistically we're pretty much even. Good luck to you next season. Already looking forward to it.
